Additional Information

Advantages to booking your room through Experient

ICMA secures room blocks at several hotels to meet a variety of conference attendee tastes and budgets. ICMA’s official housing company, Experient, is solely authorized to coordinate hotel reservations for the conference.  By booking a hotel room through Experient, you receive:

  • immediate email acknowledgement of your hotel assignment,
  • a guaranteed room reservation at an “official” ICMA conference hotel, and
  • access to Experient’s customer service representatives for help with your reservation.

When attendees reserve rooms at hotels that are NOT within the official hotel block, ICMA is:

  • unable to assist when a reservation cannot be located in a hotel’s system,
  • unable to protect reservation when a hotel “oversells” its room inventory, and
  • exposed to penalties for not fulfilling contractual room block commitments. By avoiding such penalties, ICMA is able to keep conference costs down.

Note: There are unethical third-party companies that misrepresent themselves by claiming to be an event’s official housing provider and profit by booking registrants outside the official room block. Experient is the only company authorized to coordinate hotel reservations for ICMA.
